What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

From October to April, the weather is gorgeous. Mid-high 80s, mid-low 70s at night. Low humidity at that time, too. That's also whale-shark season. But from April to September, it is super hot and humid, more than 100 degrees. By June-July, you are just moving from one air-conditioned place to another. - Jun 14, 2016
Great in the winter, some storms and hamseen (sp?) in the summer. Watch the movie Hidalgo and you'll get an idea of the occasional storm here. - Aug 14, 2015
Winters are comfortably warm and sunny. Summers are, admittedly, extremely hot and can get dusty. It rarely rains. - Feb 28, 2013
The "winter" is in the 80s (October to April). The summer is very hot - up to 120 degrees with high humidity (May to September). - Apr 13, 2010
Clear and sunny all year round. Rain only a few times a year if that. But when it rains... oh la la. - Aug 15, 2008
Always HOT, no - not all of the time. The weather from November to February is very nice. - Apr 1, 2008
